As with some other breeds, the Conformation (typically “Show”, “English” or “bench”) and the Field (typically “Working” or “American”) lines differ, although both lines are bred in both countries. In general, however, Conformation Labradors tend to be bred as medium-sized dogs, shorter and stockier with fuller faces and a slightly calmer nature than their Field counterparts, which are often bred as taller, lighter-framed dogs, with slightly less broad faces and a slightly longer nose. However, Field Labradors should still be proportional and fit within American Kennel Club standards. With Field Labradors, excessively long noses, thin heads, long legs, and lanky frames are not considered standard. These two types are informal and not codified or standardised; no distinction is made by the AKC or other kennel clubs, but the two types come from different breeding lines. Australian stock also exists; though not seen in the West, they are common in Asia. These dogs are also very good with children.

Arthritis is a common condition amongst elderly Labradors, but it can be helped with the right pain medication and on occasions surgical intervention. There are also various ways you can make your arthritic Lab more comfortable at home, which we will look at a little later on.

The first St. John’s dog was said to be brought to England in or around 1820, but the breed’s reputation had already spread to England; there is a story that the 2nd Earl of Malmesbury saw a St. John’s dog on a fishing boat and immediately made arrangements with traders to have some of these dogs imported to England. These ancestors of the first labradors so impressed the Earl with their skill and ability for retrieving anything within the water and on shore that he devoted his entire kennel to developing and stabilising the breed.

Lucas you must. I have been an owner now for two years and it is simply the best. Already today, I have had the pleasure of attempting to wash my car as Dudley, my chocolate Labrador ran frenetic and crazy circles around the front lawn with the hosepipe dangling from his mouth. Check out my blog page for more such crazy stuff from him too.

In the 1830s, the 10th Earl of Home and his nephews the 5th Duke of Buccleuch and Lord John Scott, had imported progenitors of the breed from Newfoundland to Europe for use as gundogs. Another early advocate of these Newfoundland dogs, or Labrador Retrievers as they later became known, was the 2nd Earl of Malmesbury who bred them for their expertise in waterfowling.
11. Labradors thrive on encouragement. Positive reinforcement training has been shown to have far better results in modifying a dog’s behavior than harsh training methods. Researchers suggest training your dog well and early on to avoid any problems with aggression.
This sweatshirt is a good quality shirt, true to size and as the title says has a great Black Lab picture on it! It was bought as a gift for someone whose dog looks just like the one on the shirt. She loves the shirt! The shipping was prompt and as promised was here in time for Christmas! The seller has a good professional manner and is reliable enough that I would shop from him again.

I grew up with labs and my mom always loved the yellows the best, saying they were more mellow. I got my black lab Alice when I graduated high school, who is now 7, and she is the sweetest and friendliest, most beautiful dog! She is always so happy and she does have a lot of energy, so we go to the park to throw her frisbee discs as often as possible. She just has such a wonderful personality and it makes me really love the blacks. I would recommend them, or yellows, for a home family pet because they do so well with children and prove to be very loyal and protective.

The Labrador Retriever is one terrific family dog — given enough vigorous exercise (preferably including swimming and fetching games) and not just a walk around the block once a day. Too much confinement and not enough exercise can lead to rambunctiousness and destructive chewing.
I’m looking for a family who spends lots of time outdoors, whether it’s the park, beach or backyard. I’m smart, so don’t expect me to always amuse myself, I flourish with training and being kept busy. If you love to run, take me with you. If you like dog parks, I do too.
WE DO NOT HAVE CATS IN OUR FOSTER HOMES SO MOST OF THE TIME WE DON’T KNOW HOW THE DOGS ARE WITH CATS. UNLESS WE HAVE A NOTATION ON THE INDIVIDUAL DOG BIO THAT THEY HAVE PREVIOUSLY LIVED WITH A CAT OR SHELTER TESTS SHOW THEY IGNORE THE CAT THEN WE DON’T KNOW HOW THEY ARE WITH CATS.
Labradors are very responsive to training, which is why they are often used as sniffer dogs and guide or companion dogs. This highly loveable breed is probably not the best guard dog, as they would more likely greet an intruder with a friendly lick and tail wag.

Labs love to eat, and they will try to eat anything. They are professional countersurfers, and they will eat anything that looks like it might be food. If nothing else, living with a Lab will teach you, your spouse and your kids to put things away if they don’t want them to be chewed up or eaten. Veterinarians call these dogs “Flabradors” because obesity is common once they hit their middle-age mellowing out stage. A measured diet, good supervision and plenty of exercise are a must to keep these happy retrievers healthy and out of trouble.
This is a remarkable piece with a special message to those who truly love the special connection between humans and dogs. Each of the four paw prints represents one of the four chambers of the heart. The curving line is actually the outline of a heart that is opened. When the human and dog connect t…
I love my Labs Charlie and Frankie because of their good sense of humour and their super good nature. I call them “my sweet crocodiles”. They are a bit crazy – Charlie is hyperactive just like Marley from the book “Marley and me” – but You just forgive them everything, because they keep on smiling at You so innocently… Real heartbreakers, I say.

Avoid breeders who only seem interested in how quickly they can unload a puppy on you and whether your credit card will go through. You should also bear in mind that buying a puppy from websites that offer to ship your dog to you immediately can be a risky venture, as it leaves you no recourse if what you get isn’t exactly what you expected. Put at least as much effort into researching your puppy as you would into choosing a new car or expensive appliance. It will save you money in the long run.
When adopting a Labrador, you will be asked to make a contribution which will be dependant on the age, health and general well being of the dog. Please contact you nearest Area Coordinator for further information.
The only knock I give this is – As a group, the labs are not the best looking labs I’ve seen. My labs are much better looking than many of these. I’m just saying their are a lot of great looking labs. The guys at Brown Trout could have selected better looking dogs. Some of the labs in the calendar are special, others are not.

Elbow dysplasia is the term for an elbow joint that is malformed on X-rays. The mechanism of the malformation is unclear but it may be due to differences in the growth rates of the three bones that make up the elbow joint, particularly the humerus and ulna. In mildly affected dogs the only consequence may be arthritis. In more severely affected dogs, osteochondritis dissecans (OCD), fragmented medial coronoid processes and united anconeal processes can result from the stress in the joint. Some vets think that these problems may not be secondary but may actually be the primary problems and that the bone changes occur as a result of them. It is difficult to be sure but there does appear to be measurable differences in bone growth in dogs that have elbow dysplasia. There are a number of changes visible on X-rays and the OFA does evaluate X-rays for evidence of elbow dysplasia.

I’m talking in broad brush strokes, but generally society has become more cynical and suspicious. When was the last time you said good morning to a stranger on the Tube? A Labrador wouldn’t dream of missing the opportunity to say hello and will always give strangers the benefit of the doubt. It’s an attractive trait, although, of course, there’s always the hope that you might also have a biscuit in your pocket.
